Ganked from blown_lightbulb:

She and I seem to be sharing memes lately...it's all devious way of infiltrating LJ with our stupid little games.

Anyway:

Give me a character and get 6 words, give me a pairing and get between 6 and 12. 

I'll write in my fandoms or outside them, but I have to have a vague idea of the canon.  Therefore, please no RPF, manga/anime, or video game canons.   Other than that you should be ok unless its terribly obscure.

Okay, guys, as promised I bring pictures of knits in book!Ravenclaw colors:

I used this pattern: a typical House scarf seemed too bulky for the summer, which is when I'm going to wear this (to the release of book 7); I'm currently working on a House Unity Scarf to cozy up with in the wintertime.  This was done on size 8 needles in Red Heart yarn, Soft Navy and (I think) Bronze, I could be wrong though since I bought it at a clearance and the wrappers were missing.  I was so pleased with the scarf I modified the pattern a bit to make myself a headband:  All I did was cast on 10 stitches instead of the recommended 22 and I only worked stockinette between the bars for 10 rows instead of 18.  It was a very quick knit and came out very well.

You know it will just not quit raining up here. It's getting old.  One of the guys I work with, Matt, told me that last year Suckville had 45 days of sun total.  All year.  I've been living here two months to the day and I can count on one hand how many even moderately nice days we've had.  I'm going stir-crazy.  I wonder if this is God's idea of a sick joke.

In other news, our next-door neighbors have decided to take on a full scale project that involves a lot of hammering.  And our walls are really thin, so for about three days now the constant hammering has really been getting to us.  Why does anyone need to hammer that much?  And we can't get outside because its raining.

My physics professor said that time travel is impossible because it breaks the Law of Conservation of Mass.  He's thinking in a three dimensional sense, though. If you thihnk of time as a fourth dimension and the Earth at all times in its life as a closed system, the law is not broken.  But I don't believe in time travel anyway, though it makes interesting science fiction (the Time Machine, anyone?). We've been discussing time travel in FS is the reason I even bring it up, and sometimes just thinking about it gives me a headache.   

However, I just finished Rendezvous with Rama.  It was an excellent book.  I don't know if I believe in aliens but if I did these would be the sort of aliens I would believe in.  Rama itself is facinating.  I wish Clarke would have cleared up a few of the mysteries he presented but I guess that was the whole point of the novel.  Mostly I wanted to hear more about the science behind the Ramans' space drive, because that was really cool.

So I finished my bias scarf that I was knitting, and I began a little matching hairband.  Probably I'll get pictures of both up later on tonight or else tomorrow. 

Oh, and I'm almost done your art meme,

Oh, Gods, guys.  I finally got up the courage to begin to read "My Immortal"

Enoby says: He was so sexy that my body went all hot when I saw him kind of like an erection only I’m a girl so I didn’t get one you sicko.

HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally see what all the fuss is about.  That girl is either very brilliant or extremely insane and stupid.

*feels tired and slightly sick*

What are your opinions on BNF's and badfic?  Like, a BNF in my fandom just wrote some REAAAAAALLY bad badfic.  I'm not talking Cassie Claire Draco Trilogy badfic.  I don't even think I'm talking Celebrian badfic.  

I'm talking brainbreaking character rape and wild oocness coupled with OMG SO.  MUCH.  GANGBANGING.  Of a character that should never, by all rights, let such a thing happen to him.

I kinda want to yell, DID YOU WATCH THE SHOW, but this fan is part of the elite of this fandom, and either co-mods or has a close friend co-modding every comm on LJ pertaining to this (smallish, almost dying) fandom.

Subject:The Importance of being...aw, hell, I dunno
Time:12:37 am.
Mood:bouncy.
So, working at the coffeeshop today, and we have these syrup bottles (for flavoring coffee and such) with these odd, angled tops.

I bet you know what I'm talking about. They're like thise little spouts, pointing straight up, that attach to a cork that you stick in a bottle of flavoring.

So, I noticed our English toffee flavor was out. So I went to get some.

And, when I opened thre new bottle, it was really full, and I knew when I pushed in the stopper there was gonna be a bit of overflow.

So, I thought, I'll just shove this cork in as quick as possible. I shoved it in, and, forgetting there was a spout at the top...

...the pressure caused the syrup to, like, SPOOGE out. It flew straight up in the air in a stream and actually hit the ceiling. And it got all over me, and it was sticky and it SMELLED (because it was toffee flavor).

I did the only thing I could. I laughed hysterically.

I just realized thast, upon coming to college , I post in this thing a lot more.

Like, almost every day, sometimes two posts a day.

Used to be I'd get in about two posts a month,  I woder why that is?  Is my life more interesting?  Or is it more boring in that I spend a lot of time on LJ?

Wow.

Alan Rickman is 60 years old?  What?

And he STILL has probably every woman in the known world drooling over him (I'll admit, me included, though I am now weirded out).

Amazing.

I seem to be afflicted by that all-too-common malaise that left-brainers typically exhibit, anywhere from Albert Einstein to Jimmy Neutron. Simply, I wish I were more creative and less objective. It's weird, how my right brain can be so underdeveloped when I'm left-handed.

Anyway, I'm wondering why the more creative people never wish they could be more objective. I don't know, maybe they do but they never say anything, but they mostly seem happy with the way they are.

I have this ability to see both sides of a situation, to reason levelheadedly and not get involved, and to be practical to a point where it can make people scream.

All I want is a little fancy and the ability to be involved, and to care sometimes, and to make something beautiful.

I want to make something: a poem, a painting, something of my own, and I can't, and I'm stuck in a practical, stuffy world of objectivity and whether something is logical or not. I'm turning into Spock or Kirk or whoever that was from Star Trek.

I'm too staid and stolid and predictable, as comforting and sure as the tides to the people that know me but I feel like I need to shake things up a bit.

I need to change a little. I need to quit being so unforgivably Ravenclaw and start being Hufflepuffy. I have to care. I'm trustworthy and true, and people know this, and I have to start displaying it a little more. My friends care deeply about me; why can't I show themcare about them too?

I dare say I'm a little tired of myself right now.

Last night, the fire alarm went off in my building FOUR BLOODY TIMES.

Once at around midnight. That I could handle, as I was just about to get ready for bed, but it kinda interuupted the physics breakthrough I'd been having.

Once at about five in the morning. Yeah, that sucked.

Once at around nine in the morning. I was debating getting up anyway, so that was OK.

Then, as soon as we were allowed back inside from the nine o clock one, it went off AGAIN.

And it's really cold up here, so standing outside in PJs is not fun.

So. Am downloading IZ episode for an AMV.

Apparently, "The Wettening" is not just an IZ episode, it is also the title of some badly drawn IZ hentai  ZADR video.

So, I downloaded this, sat down to watch it, expecting rainstorms and water balloons,  and five seconds in was like "BZUH?? Um, why does Dib have..."

And this was followed by a period ofwide-eyed amazement and  "OMG Irkens can do WHAT? Is that even POSSIBLE???"

Followed by me bleaching my brain. 

And panicking, turning off the computer, screaming, then turning the computer back on...the video was still tehre on my desktop...I yelled again, deleted it, then started laughing hysterically.

And I still need the real "The Wettening", damn it, and I'm afraid to try again.

I really should remember to check my sources from now on.

Okay, guys, meme time.

This goes for the lurkers too.

Read my journal.  Of whom do I remind you?  Is it a book character, a celebrity, one of your friends?  If possible, post a picture of this person, and give a short explanation.

Copy and paste this in your journal too.  It's fun!
